Rhaegar Targaryen and Aerys II Targaryen, the Mad King.

Apparently I'm in some kind of a "let's paint a dying Targaryen" mood...

I faved this a long time ago but forgot to leave a comment :(
this smells of blood ^^ very beautifully done, that madness expression on Aerys's face, and Rhaegar's body language, his hand trying to prevent blood flow, red blood and white hair blending slowly in dark water, his head bowed like a failed man... I can even his "thoughts", he is thinking about Lyanna and a failed kingdom :( It was a pity he died, he was the only Targaryen I loved :(((

Wow, I really love this! Especially the way Rhaegar's hair mingles with the foaming water, and the red rubies that sink through the blood...He really looks like he is crumbling into the river. Great job!:)

None of them got the death they deserve.

Indeed. A thousand deaths will still be less than they deserve. Their deaths were too kind.
CMVreud's avatar
Aerys, yes. But Rhaegar?
Exam-Kun's avatar
Definitely. He and Lyanna is the Game Of Thrones version of Paris and Helen from the Illiad. Him running away caused millions of deaths, including most of his family.

I think it's more along these lines with them.

Not a big fan of Game of Thrones, but I´m a huge fan of paintings containing black-white-red color scheme, bonus points for blood :D Nice work!
I love your icon :D

Umierający Targaryenowie to dość wdzięczny temat. ;) Świetnie wyszedł Ci Aerys. :)
